Where the Sidewalk Ends is one of my favorite P anthologies of all time. As a child I would spend hours reading over each of his fun poems. This could be a useful book to use for RT or AS. The poems in this book will bring a smile to children of all ages.

This is a great website with different resources to bring into your classroom when covering this text.

Apeacock12 ESOL strategy 14 can be satisfied by reading poetry through the text slower before RT. UDL 5 can be satisfied through AS and RT. By giving students opportunities to express poems in different ways, it can be beneficial to ESOL students. #UCFLAE3414SU19 2mo

DrSpalding Independent reading… Or a literature circle option while you are teaching about historical figures in social studies. There are many in the series that highlight historical figures. How about having small groups read different books in the series and then share a loud what they learned? 1mo
